Hey! A juicy spider . . . wait a minute. It’s a tarantula! Aren’t they poisonous?
Better look him over carefully.
Taking advantage of the break in the activity, the tarantula makes a run for it.
So, what do you think? Uh-oh – look out! He’s escaping!!
All you can see are hairy legs!
He’s gone – and it’s YOUR fault!
After this scenario, there was a lot of commotion up in the pyracantha bush. I’m sure I heard, “yeah, well it was a fierce battle, but that guy is dead meat. See, I have tarantula breath.”
Cheers went up, and he was the hero!
